If you wish to get your pictures in a more immediate fashion, please call Lifetouch at 479-631-8951. Use extension 4 in order to speak with the office. If not you will be routed to the customer service call center (which is experiencing long wait times).

Springdale School District is the Proud Recipient of a $150,000 Grant in Partnership with the Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas
About the grant:
Springdale School District was awarded $150,000 From the Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas for the project titled The Springdale and Blue & You Healthy Playground Renovation. The overarching goal is to provide quality outdoor play spaces in support of physical, social, mental, and emotional health for students and families. The new equipment will be purchased and installed on the grounds of five elementary schools: Bayarri, Knapp, Monitor, Sonora, and Walker Elementary Schools. Between the five schools 3,457 students and their families will enjoy improved quality of recess facilities and their families and neighbors will benefit from safe convenient recreation in their local neighborhoods. The playground equipment will be purchased immediately upon receipt of funding and will be installed in 2020. In recent years the school district removed old playground equipment that was no longer safe or up to code. The faculty, staff, students, and families are excited at the prospect of updating their play space. Recess time for elementary schools increased from 20 to 40 minutes per day for the 2019-2020 school year, the new equipment will allow for increased the ratio of play infrastructure to children during that time. The project will focus on getting all children active during recess. The U.S. Surgeon General recommends that children engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. The playgrounds are open for community use when school is not in session through a Joint Use Agreement between the Springdale School District and the City of Springdale. Springdale School District was one of 40 health improvement grant recipients chosen from 261 applicants.

Girls on the Run needs your help! We are collecting food donations to send home with students, on Thanksgiving break. You may drop items off in the yellow hall, outside of Ms. Pittman’s room. (Some examples would be macaroni and cheese, instant potatoes, stuffing, canned goods, sweet treats, canned chicken, or any non-perishable items.)
There will be no Girls on the Run today due to weather.
We hope to see everyone in their cardigan’s on Wednesday!
